    George Soros now buying social media shares

    https://www.rt.com/usa/436059-soros-buying-social-media-shares/

    Months after denouncing social media as a “menace to society,” controversial billionaire George Soros is again investing into Facebook, Twitter and streaming services Spotify and Pandora, while scaling back his Google holdings.

    With hedge funds filing their second-quarter statements with regulators this week, it has emerged that Soros Fund Management LLC is once again investing in Facebook. The fund has also bought shares in Twitter and the two streaming platforms, while selling off some stock in Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc. and Amazon.com.

    How is Soros still alive? He and everyone associated with that serpent should have been rounded up and taken care of by now. I've used the term "nation wreckers" to refer to a certain group of people here before. In his case it's "world wrecker".

    That wicked sociopath signed a deal with the Dickens long, long ago. Hopefully, the wretched SOB will soon be cast into “outer darkness” where he belongs.

    Freedom of speech on the internet is the most important thing Donald Trump can do. It is vital. We must the same rights of free speech on the internet as we do in any public place.

    Think about the many mini-Soros out there doing the same thing their Idol is doing, except on a smaller scale.

    They will (also) receive due recompence...where there is “weeping and gnashing of teeth”.

    The Left Censors Because It Must Censor

    A great comment from Thomas over at Sailer’s:

    It’s truly fascinating how being merely a civic nationalist warrants the left’s “supremacist” label.

    I think the problem for the left elite is even more fundamental than that. Have you noticed how unmediated channels of communication on the Web have dried up in the last couple years? The social media bigs (Facebook, Twitter, to a lesser extent, Reddit) have more or less outsourced content control and the right to participate to outfits like the SPLC or algorithms that adopt their criteria. Comment sections a lot of places have disappeared, and even goofball outlets like InfoWars have faced censorship. The left needs to keep people atomized and processing information only through approved channels. Lateral means of uncontrolled and unmediated communication or coordination, like a grass roots fraternal organization, are inherently dangerous, because they can form fertile ground for people to notice things, and to realize that other people notice things too. (Even in the case of something like the Proud Boys, you’ll get shown the door if you discuss certain topics a little too openly.)

    The Left censors because if they don’t, dissident thought flourishes, and then dissidents flourish, emboldened by the knowledge that they aren’t alone. The awakening is wildfire, not isolated embers.

    The Left occupies minds by gaslighting the populace; this is why it must squelch, contain, and punish free thought and speech. Unauthorized lateral communication helps the revolutionary fire catch and spread, burning down the artifice constructed by the leftoid Equalism Narrative gatekeepers.

    The high priests of the Left know they have been shoving Lies down our throats for generations. But they are egotistically invested in their religion, and their Lies are the tithes they pay to their Flat Humanity god, in hopes that one day the cosmic order will realign and vindicate their faith. In the meantime, heretics will be crushed so the Left can comfortably evade the reckoning that they so richly and belatedly deserve.
